  • I love Trap Pond State Park. Great for kayaking and biking. The cabins are right near the water. If you want to hang out in nature, this is a great place.  more »
  • My husband and I wore driving by and decided to stopp to check the park out. I'm giving a 5 star even though there isn't a beach and no swimming is allowed in the lake. There are kayaks, paddle board, boat, etc to go on the lake. Everyone is very friendly! There are lots of activities to do. We did not visit the nature center. We will definitely coming back.
  • I love kayaking/ canoeing here every year. Make sure to take a trip down terrapin branch. It is a narrow passageway through the cypress trees. Such a beautiful place to see all the handiwork of God!
